It has finally rained here in Ascoli Piceno. After a week of fires all around the Piceno area and a couple days of promising clouds with nothing but dry winds we finally have rain. From our years in Albuquerque we know the experience of weeks without any moisture but the drought this summer has been unexpected and unusual.
We continue to have water shortages, many nights our faucets run dry by 10PM, and these are expected to continue through September. Hopefully the rain will continue for several days and the area will find some relief to the wildfire dangers and the water shortage.
